Standing proud overlooking Sandy Bay on an elevated promontory this designer beach house delivers the ultimate kiwi coastal lifestyle. The site is substantial at 2,746m2 (more or less) which takes in the entire hillside making this beach house a very private retreat just 2 and a half hours from Auckland.
The northern aspect overlooking the white sand surf beach and out to the Poor Knights Islands is absolutely captivating and ever changing. The surfing here is a good as you get on this coast and is the home to some great surfing events during the year.
The clever architecture incorporating two separate pavilions which are linked by a central covered deck works brilliantly for its intended use. The living wing which has a split level design to maximise the beach and ocean outlook is open and light filled with extensive use of glass. This area opens to a balcony on the ocean side and private courtyard to the rear with outdoor fireplace for those balmy evenings of entertaining.
The accommodation wing incorporates 3 large bedrooms all opening to a north facing balcony area overlooking the bay complete with shutters to allow the area to be used and another indoor/outdoor living space. One bedroom is set up as a bunkroom and there are two full bathrooms included.
If you are looking for the best in coastal living for your family you must view this property as the coastline here is the best you will find in New Zealand.
